River Description

See Banks & Eckardt, Colorado Rivers & Creeks II. They break it up into three short runs, with the first mile a Class-V section. Roadside access is available via I-70, but they caution against parking your car alongside the interstate at the uppermost putin. Getting towed kinda sux.

Lat/longitude coords of the putin and takeout are approximate, from TopoZone.
